My name is Kate, I’m 30, and I have never carved a pumpkin for Halloween. My wife would probably be disgusted if she had indeed carved a pumpkin in her thirty-something years, but alas, she hasn’t either.
I think the lack of jack-o-lanterns in our life is down to the fact that neither of our families celebrated Halloween, so as we grew up we never really understood the fascination of it. We never went trick-or-treating as it wasn’t really the done thing in the UK in the 80’s and 90’s, or certainly not where we lived, it was more of an American tradition. Halloween parties didn’t really happen, and schools certainly didn’t celebrate by installing an influx of cobwebs like they do now (excluding the ones already around that dodgy gymnasium). Anyway, I digress.
This year, we’ve decided to change things and carve our very own pumpkin. It always looks like fun and I’m quite partial to a pumpkin flavoured something! Plus, thanks to nursery, Halloween is very much celebrated like any other celebration – so why not get into the spirit and join in!
